BLOOMSBURG, Pennsylvania (AP):Having killed more than 40 people, wrecked homes and knocked down trees and power lines in the Caribbean last week, Hurricane Sandy has now set her sights on the United States.
By yesterday tropical storm warnings had been issued for parts of Florida's East Coast, along with parts of coastal North and South Carolina and The Bahamas.
Tropical storm watches were issued for coastal Georgia and parts of South Carolina, along with parts of Florida and Bermuda.
Sandy was projected to hit the Atlantic Coast early Tuesday.
As it turns back to the north and northwest and merges with colder air from a winter system, West Virginia and further west into eastern Ohio and southern Pennsylvania are expected to get snow.
Forecasters were looking at the Delaware shore as the spot the storm will turn inland, bringing 10 inches of rain and extreme storm surges.
